  5. It’s a hard recipe to master, but when passion and reason are finely blended the results can be unpredictable and intoxicating. They can also be maddening. This is part of the attraction of Dan Carlin. Original and outside-the-box thinking on current events and history to be sure, but could he also be woefully out of step with conventional wisdom?

    He talks fast, he’s loud, he’s a deep thinker who adores history and who will challenge your view of the world, while he does the same thing to himself. He’s a bit of a throwback to something from the past, and yet not quite like anything else yet seen. It’s a New Media/ “eye of the beholder” sort of thing. You’ll have to decide for yourself. His style is not for everyone. It’s not meant to be.

  7. 2 Books to Read on Human Behavior

    2 Books to Read on Human Behavior

    1- Moral Calculations: Game Theory, Logic, and Human Frailty Laszlo Mero [book]
    What does game theory tell us about rational behavior? Is there such a thing as rational behavior, and if so, is it of any use to us? In this fascinating book, renowned Hungarian economist Laszlo Mero shows how game theory provides insight into such aspects of human psychology as altruism, competition, and politics, as well as its relevance to disparate fields such as physics and evolutionary biology. This ideal guide shows us how mathematics can illuminate the human condition.

    2- The Invisible Gorilla: How Our Intuitions Deceive Us by Christopher Chabris and Daniel Simons
    Reading this book will make you less sure of yourself—and that’s a good thing. In The Invisible Gorilla, Christopher Chabris and Daniel Simons, creators of one of psychology’s most famous experiments, use remarkable stories and counterintuitive scientific findings to demonstrate an important truth: Our minds don’t work the way we think they do. We think we see ourselves and the world as they really are, but we’re actually missing a whole lot.
    Chabris and Simons combine the work of other researchers with their own findings on attention, perception, memory, and reasoning to reveal how faulty intuitions often get us into trouble. In the process, they explain:

    • Why a company would spend billions to launch a product that its own analysts know will fail
    • How a police officer could run right past a brutal assault without seeing it
    • Why award-winning movies are full of editing mistakes
    • What criminals have in common with chess masters
    • Why measles and other childhood diseases are making a comeback
    • Why money managers could learn a lot from weather forecasters

    Again and again, we think we experience and understand the world as it is, but our thoughts are beset by everyday illusions. We write traffic laws and build criminal cases on the assumption that people will notice when something unusual happens right in front of them. We’re sure we know where we were on 9/11, falsely believing that vivid memories are seared into our minds with perfect fidelity. And as a society, we spend billions on devices to train our brains because we’re continually tempted by the lure of quick fixes and effortless self-improvement.
    The Invisible Gorilla reveals the myriad ways that our intuitions can deceive us, but it’s much more than a catalog of human failings. Chabris and Simons explain why we succumb to these everyday illusions and what we can do to inoculate ourselves against their effects. Ultimately, the book provides a kind of x-ray vision into our own minds, making it possible to pierce the veil of illusions that clouds our thoughts and to think clearly for perhaps the first time.

  11. 1. Qu’est ce qu’une famille ?
    Qu’on l’aime ou pas, qu’on la connaisse ou pas, qu’on vive avec ou pas, on a tous (au moins)une famille. On n’y pense pas forcément tous les matins (encore que !) mais nombre d’institutions et de professions s’y consacrent tandis que des chercheurs de nombreuses disciplines en sciences sociales l’auscultent : anthropologue, historien, sociologue, psychanalyste, démographe sans oublier le droit.
    Quelles que soient les sociétés et l’époque étudiées, les deux piliers de tout système de parenté, l’alliance et la descendance, sont institués. Pas tous de la même façon comme les anthropologues l’ont montré. Et dans une société donnée, pas de façon figée. Mais tandis que les évolutions étaient lentes et parfois peu perceptibles à l’échelle d’une même génération (en dehors des périodes révolutionnaires), elles ont été extrêmement rapides depuis la seconde moitié du XXème siècle au point qu’on parle maintenant DES familles.
    J’ai choisi de vous embarquer dans NOS HISTOIRES DE FAMILLE à travers ceux qui l’analysent, ceux qui s’en occupent professionnellement au quotidien, et tous ceux qui en ont parlé hier à travers les archives et aujourd’hui dans nos reportages.
    J’en retire l’impression qu’aucune discipline, aucun professionnel, aucun politique, aucun citoyen n’a le monopole de « la famille ». Personne d’ailleurs ne le prétend ou ne devrait le prétendre.
    Mais qu’est-ce qu’une famille ?
    L’anthropologue Maurice Godelier sera notre guide dans cette première émission.
